I really enjoyed staying here. There is a fee to park with in and out privileges. It is close to Target and other stores. What I liked most was that everyone there seemed to genuinely want me to enjoy my stay. I ordered room service, the menu had a nice variety of choices with a great price range. Also there...

My husband and I were in town for a convention in DC. We decided to stay out of the city and some where a little more relaxing. We chose the Renaissance Arlington Capital View and were not disappointed. The hotel is located in Crystal City, VA and just a short ride to the DCA airport. They offer 2 shuttles that...

Yes, it is barely a mile from DCA (great for early departures), quiet and nestled in multi-hotel area. 14 floors means some rooms look onto other buildings. It is next to the railroad but I didn't hear it on the 6th floor. The Club Lounge on the 14th is well worth a little extra for a quick, hot breakfast or...

Had the breakfast buffet on 3/26/17. Eggs cooked to order were great but rest of food on the buffet was cold. Ate the hash browns and got very sick about 8 hours later. Was sick for two days. Hotel has done nothing about it.

BUT surprisingly nothing prepared and even front desk was not aware of my request. Also club lounge does not serve any food...

Went for another stay at this excellent hotel. Roxana at the front desk did an outstanding job of getting me a great room, especially since I brought my wife on this trip. Great fitness center with plenty of modern equipment. Great Club Lounge with a new cappuccino/latte machine and other great amenities. Pedro, who ran the Lounge at night was...

Hotel room was very comfortable and nicely appointed. Like most of the Marriott, Renaissance, and Sheraton chains, though, the executive lounge area was closed most of the weekend. Yes, I got comp points or food discount, but it's not the same. All of the Executive lounges now charge pretty hefty drink prices, too, sometimes with the cost of a single...

This property appears to have been recently renovated and is in decent condition. The staff is mostly helpful. The lobby is modern, but somewhat noisy. The rooms are quite small, but recently renovated. There were a few issues with my room such as soap scum on the bottom of the shower glass, something that I've never encountered before. One of...

A pleasant stay - the staff were accomodating, the rooms comfortable, and the meeting rooms more than adequate (I was here for a conference). The only complaint I would have is that they need to rename this hotel - there is certain no view of the capital from anywhere - you'll see in the picture, the view from my room...
